Karamfil, Ya Abud, Ivanice

Last Wednesday Susan O. taught Karamfil from Bulgaria

Here is Ya Abud close to the way we do it. Bill is having fun with his drum playing along.

Sue C. also reviewed Ivanice(a?)

Susan O also taught Ouvre Moi and Neda Voda Nalirala, but I can't find them on the web.

We had a great time at the party. Even in 101 degree weather there was a great turn out of 16 people! We ate great food, listened to the Unforgettables that aren't so unforgettable! Some of us even got a dip or two in the pool, and of course we can't forget the dancing on the lawn after it "cooled" a little.

This gave us some time to get to talk, since we go from dance to dance talking gives way to dancing!

World Cup Dance

Talk about folk dancing being relevant! Has anyone heard about the Diski?
http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=128260019 It sounds like the South Africans commemorate their momentous occasions with new dances! The Codesa is the dance they use to celebrate the end of Apartheid.

Any one have any ideas for a dance to commemorate an event in the USA?
